A true oasis in the middle of a city.
As I walked into the bar I was greeted by Klaus with a grand South Africa welcoming. He asked what I required and every rely was yes, which is the Afrikaner spirit. Support an overlander enthusiast.

the manager is very kind and keen to receive overlanders for free in the parking lot. but don't expect a nice compound... the parking lot is very small and right in front of the entrance of the restaurant, lots of lights and people/cars passing by he whole night, no privacy. It is a good solution to stay for free in a big city but it is not very sexy...
the restaurant is nice and chill with good food for raisonnable price. swimming in the pool is allowed for 3000cfa pp.

Perfect place for a night over in Douala. Free to sleep in our 4x4 on the parking. Access to toilets. They have delicious food at their restaurant (the german sausage is delicious) ! friendly staff

New manager since Sep ‘22. Let us camp inside the compound free of charge. Wouldn’t accept money and said we can eat in restaurant if we want to contribute. Had Thüringer sausage, very nice! We were able to take a shower and I had a swim in the pool (ask first). There will be a new manager in 6 months for now camping is back on 👍

the restaurant is very busy the parking is limited and so they are not really happy with "campers" anymore. Some of our Spezies takes everything for free and gives nothing in retourn, doesn't work like that for long...
Good food, nice pool, relaxed area!!

Very nice place.
Unfortunately it was a pretty busy weekend. They wanted to charge us 80.000cfa for 3 persons per night. No room for negotiation at all. So that was well expensive and disappointing. We are on motorbikes, so no option to camp at the parking. That said it otherwise would be 27.000cfa per person per night so they didn’t get why we didn’t want to pay 80.000cfa per night.

So unfortunately it turned out to be way above our budget.

Allowed us to camp in the parking lot and let use the shower - all for free. Friendly and with a nice restaurant (amazing view in the evening). Thanks for letting us stay there!

Although the pastor and his wife are not here anymore, camping in the parking lot is still possible and free (I ate and drank in the restaurant in return).

The parking lot is just a parking lot so nothing special but the garden with pool, bar and restaurant is lovely! Food and drinks are not cheap. WiFi only worked near the reception and there was a problem with the shower when I was here but I can still recommend this place. Probably the best place if you have to be in Douala.

The new manager is friendly and didn’t mind at all to let me camp for free.

We were allowed to camp at the parking spot. Really friendly people, they didn't charge us this time so we drank a beer at the lovely bar for compensation. You can also eat here, nice food.

A huge, western "Spar" Supermarket is around the Corner.
